The MUSH has a built-in "chat" system. This lets you talk with other players who are not necessarily in the same room. This is useful if you are moving around and exploring, and more versatile than using "page" as everyone on that "chat channel" can hear what is being said.
To start, see what channels are available:
@channel/list Name Privs Quiet Newbie Public No Theme Public No OOC Public No
Choose an appropriate channel (Newbie for new players, Theme for messages "in theme", OOC for Out Of Character messages), and then join the channel, like this:
@channel/on newbie Channel added. <Newbie> Freddie has joined this channel.
To talk on the chat channel, type a "+" followed by the channel name, like this:
+newbie Hi all you newbies! <Newbie> Freddie says, "Hi all you newbies!"
Anything that identifies the channel uniquely will do, so you could say:
+n meet you at the pub <Newbie> Freddie says, "meet you at the pub"
You can also "pose" using a colon, like this:
+n :winks <Newbie> Freddie winks
To remove yourself from a chat channel:
@channel/off newbie Channel deleted.
You can join more than one channel.
